Puerto Montt, Chile - Little Germany Below the Volcano

By Arieu
The southern shore of Chile consists of magnificent fjords that make for a scenery that easily rivals that of Alaska and Norway. The waters also contain enormous amounts of debris, shrimp and other things that clog up the seawater systems, and we spent most of the trip eying pressure gauges and splitting filters and condensers.
Finally, at the north end of this swamp we arrive in Puerto Montt, rumored to be a quaint Bavarian village with lots to do. We are too exhausted to partake and slump down next to gracefully humming engines and compressors. In the evening we sit on deck and overlook the port. Music drifts in from shore. Far ahead a volcano rises from the horizon. On a nearer hill stands a cross, which, we all agree, is not at all as imposing as the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio. But then, very little is.
